I Corinthians 15:52 (NASB) “In a moment in the twinkling of an eye at the last trumpet, for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable and we will be changed.”
To be a “last trumpet” there must be a previous trumpet. There are seven mentioned in the Bible in Revelation. The first trumpets are to get people’s attention, giving them an opportunity to change their ways. One last chance. The 5th-7th trumpets are referred to as “woes or terrors”. According to Revelation there will be a time between the 6th and 7th trumpets. That 7th or last trumpet will come unexpectedly, in the twinkling of an eye.
We see the budding of the fig tree. This has been referred to as Israel’s rebirth as a nation. This took place over 70 years ago-May 14, 1948. In these 70 years Israel has moved from a frail beginning to become the 8th leading nation in the world, with growing prosperity. Russia, Turkey, and Iran, all players in end time events are in place. Iran has been ramping up its attacks against Israel.
This is an explosive time in human history-like the days before Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed-God’s people are awaiting the sound of the trumpet. At a time when the masses think not.
